What “That Lucky Old Sun” by Kenny Chesney Says On Hard Work

That Lucky Old Sun - Kenny Chesney and willie nelson
by

The song “That Lucky Old Sun” by Kenny Chesney is his cover of a famous 1949 single sung by Frankie Laine and written by Haven Gillespie. This performance is a part of his 12th studio album, Lucky Old Sun, an album inspired by his personal life experience.

“That Lucky Old Sun” is a collaboration with Willie Nelson, like some of the Kenny Chesney songs. This partnership started and grew after they created a unique and heartfelt rendition of this old piece.

Kenny Chesney is one of the most successful singers and songwriters in the country music industry. He has more than 20 albums and sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. He also produced multiple singles that reached the Top 10 in the US Billboard Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay.

On the other hand, Willie Nelson is also one of the most famous and well-recognized American country musicians in the scene. He has many successful albums and singles and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993. He also received several awards in his long career as a musician.

The Background of the Song

The song narrates the hardships of a man who must work all day under the sun just to earn a living for his family. It is also a plea to the Lord to inspire the man and take him to paradise, where he can take all of his troubles away and have a peaceful life — a very encouraging song that many of us can surely relate to.

Living in this world is full of trials and hardships. But no matter how troubled you are or what problems you are facing, the man above will wash that trouble away. Enjoy the song “That Lucky Old Sun” by Kenny Chesney, and be inspired today by listening to the video below.
